The Anasazi people of the Southwest existed, as a culture, for about eighteen hundred years. They disappeared in about 1300, yet they have left enduring legacies. This book explains how Anasazi culture developed and examines the civilization at its height through the life of the people who lived on top of Mesa Verde and in remarkable dwellings in the mesa's cliffs. It looks at the archaeological discoveries that revealed the ancient culture to modern people and tells of the living legacy: the Pueblo peoples who inhabit the Southwest today. Book jacket.
